This is why I didn't backport the new zif to F15.

If you're confident doing the PK and zif rebuild for F15 at the same
time then I'm happy just to stick it in F15 properly rather than
having a separate repo. I didn't trust myself enough to not break PK
in a stable release, although it would only affect people with
PackageKit-zif already installed.

I'm okay with either solution. Thanks.
